On October 6th 2012 the Rhys Lewis Athletic Legacy fund is holding a slamon derby with all proceeds going to promote athletic excellence amongst Little People of B.C.

The registration will start at 7am at Fred's Custom Tackle and the weigh-in will be at 2:30pm at the Chilliwack Fish and Games Club House. There will be a BBQ with hamburgers and hot dogs for a $2 donation. There will be pop, hot chocolate, coffee etc. 50/50 draws will be held and for those who don't wish to partake in the derby they can still show up and buy raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes.

The derby prizes will be for the largest hatchery coho, largest chinook salmon and hidden weights.

The cost of entry is $35.00. You must have a valid freshwater fishing licence and salmon stamp.

A few words describing the charity/fund from Rick:

My nephew Rhys David Lewis was born on December 23rd 2008. He was born with Achondroplasia which is the most common type of dwarfism (a little person), he was the most amazing kid I have ever met. he was incredibly funny and out going, he loved all sports and he would walk around showing anyone who would look his skills.. he would show you how he throw a baseball, kicked a soccer ball or put up his little fists and show you how he could box... he lived for a short three and a half short years and touched the lives of everybody he met.

His mother Deena has set up a fund in his name (called the Rhys Lewis athletic legacy fund) all proceeds go towards promoting athletics for little people

I will be posting prizes on here shortly, if you have ever participated in one of my previous derbies then you know that the prizes are always fantastic thx to the generous donations from our sponsors.
